The Wrestling Code is an up-coming Independent Professional Wrestling game being developed by Virtual Basement LLC.

It is built on the Unreal Engine and will be released on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, featuring impressive Next-Gen Graphics.

After months of teasing and roster signings announcements, the Virtual Basement game has been officially revealed on August 25, 2020, with the official name "The Wrestling Code" and the motto "Follow the Code".

The Virtual Basement game is said to be inspired by SmackDown! Here Comes The Pain and No Mercy.
